[Insert story title]

Catherine’s dad was a functional alcoholic.  His drinking never interfered with his work. If anything, her father’s work and alcoholism seemed intertwined.  Much like his fraternity, the guys in his financial firm often went out for drinks, as a way to catch up on business, to bond after work.  “It’s the same thing he did as a pledge trainer.  I always thought it was something he’d grow out of,” her mom said.  “I don’t know how his new wife puts up with it, though I suppose she probably joins him.”
